Complete and Excellent Stanley No. 444 Dovetail Plane .
This is a rare Stanley plane made in the early 1900s designed to facilitate cutting sliding dovetail joints in stock 1/2 to 5/4in thick. It can cut dovetails 1/4 to 5/8in deep and up to 1in wide at the "neck". This example is complete in its original finger-jointer box. The box has a faded label on the side and a complete label on the underside of the lid describing the plane's capabilities. The box of blades is complete and has the original scribe mark with instructions to grind cutters to this angle. All four blades are present as are both spur blocks. The spurs are present and long. The blades have seen a little use. The plane is completely nickel-plated. There are some small spots of discoloration and nickel loss, but the original finish is at least 99%. The box lid is cracked and could be repaired easily enough. It's a rare plane to find in this condition. It would make an exceptional addition to any Stanley collection.

Extra-Wide, Early Ogee Molding Plane.
This plane has all of the hallmarks of an early British molding plane, likely 18th century. There is no maker's name so I can't tell for sure. One look at the chamfers on the hand hold, the deeply curved step, and the precise gouge cuts are obvious evidence. The plane cuts a wide 1 3/4in by 1 1/4in deep ogee. It has evidence of a past fence attached to the sole. The massive blade is in very good condition considering its sheer area and age. It's a beautiful molding plane, a work of art in and of itself.

Mathieson 5/8in Extra-Flat Ovolo Molding PLane.
This is an odd profile, definetly not a sash plane. It cuts an ovolo so flat it's almost straight. It's 5/8in deep and 5/8in wide. It has a nice wide fence and depth stop which should make it easy to use. The blade is long and free of any pitting. The mouth is still quite tight. It's a good, usable plane with an interesting profile.

Matched Pair of 1in Tongue and Groove Molding Planes by McGlashan, Perth.
John McGlashan made planes in Perth ca. 1827-49 according to Goodman. These planes are in fair, usable condition. They have seen a lot of use and have the dings and scratches to prove it. The blade are decent and the plane s are certainly usable with a certain about of work tuning. They cut a T&G joint centered on 1in stock but will certainly work for 7/8in or 5/4.

Outstanding 18th Century Square Ovolo by Turner & Green.
This plane was made in York before 1771 according to Good,a. the plane's body follows all of the usual 18th century guidelines in terms of form. The plane has seen considerable use but remains in amazing condition considering its age and how much it's worked. It has th4e expected dings and scratches, as well as hammer marks at the heel, but that's about it- no damage or neglect. the plane cuts a 5/8in square ovolo. The blade has been used so much it is virtually used-up. With a new blade it could be put to use again, or preserved as an excellent example of the art of 18th century British plane making.

North Brothers no. 2101 10in Brace.
This is an early, Pre-Stanley 2101. It has unusual jaws I haven't seen on a Yankee before, but work just fine. It has fewer patent dates on teh ratchet housing than most I see so it might be a very early version. The ratchet is smooth in both directions. The pad and handle rotate easily- the pad has zero slop at all. It's not the prettiest, but it'll work very well.
